Was undecided between 4 and 5 stars, but i can't really find anything to fault. If you feel like Cha Ca, this is the place to go. It's all they do, so they've gotten pretty good at it. Fish tasted great and came with a mountain of herbs. A really nice, simple meal.

This restaurant only serves 1 dish and has no menu. So as soon as we sat down the staff started to serve us before they'd even spoken to us! The grilled fish was cooked on a stove on the table and we helped ourselves from it. It was quite an experience eating here and excellent value! Highly recommend.

We tried this cha ca place first and then the famous Cha Ca La Vong. This place, Cha Ca Thang Long, is superior in just about every way. The service is much more friendly, the dining environment quite nice, the food excellent and the price, while not cheap, is a much better deal than Cha Ca La Vong. A set... More

Our hotel and lonely planet recommended this place, and it didn't disappoint. Only 1 thing on the menu, but they do it well! So fresh and I love that it is cooked in front of you. I would definitely recommend!

i was directed here by people at Hotel Elegance Emerald instead of the more famous La Vong (which has its own street name). They said it was a newer and more family/child friendly. There are 3 restaurants almost next to each other. All owned by same operator and easier to find compared to the original. I tried the middle and... More

We decided to go here instead of the more famous "La Vong", and found the food, service and price to be very good. I've had this dish before, so it wasn't so much of a surprise, but it was the first time for my parther, and she loved it. We were encouraged to see that the place was filled with... More

After wandering the Old Quarter for an afternoon and ready for a unique Vietnamese dinner, we tracked down Cha Ca Thang Long to try the signature dish: cha ca. We were served our food and drink within minutes. The server started the burner at our table, began cooking a few pieces of the fish, green onions and fresh dill, then... More
